1. Lecture 8 Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) is the field that studies the rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions and the design of the reactors in which they take place.

2. Lecture 8 – Tuesday 2/5/2013 • Block 1: Mole Balances • Block 2: Rate Laws • Block 3: Stoichiometry • Block 4: Combine • Pressure Drop • Liquid Phase Reactions • Gas Phase Reactions • Engineering Analysis of Pressure Drop

3. Pressure Drop in PBRs Concentration Flow System: Gas Phase Flow System:

4. Pressure Drop in PBRs Note: Pressure Drop does NOT affect liquid phase reactions Sample Question: Analyze the following second order gas phase reaction that occurs isothermally in a PBR: AB Mole Balances Must use the differential form of the mole balance to separate variables: Rate Laws Second order in A and irreversible:

5. Pressure Drop in PBRs Stoichiometry Isothermal, T=T0 Combine: Need to find (P/P0) as a function of W (or V if you have a PFR)

6. Pressure Drop in PBRs ErgunEquation: Constant mass flow:

8. Pressure Drop in PBRs Where CatalystWeight Let

9. Pressure Drop in PBRs Wewilluse this form for singlereactions: Isothermal case

10. Pressure Drop in PBRs and or The two expressions are coupledordinary differential equations. Wecanonlysolvethemsimultaneouslyusing an ODE solversuch as Polymath. For the special case of isothermal operation and epsilon = 0, we can obtain an analytical solution. Polymath will combine the Mole Balances, Rate Laws and Stoichiometry.

19. Example 2:Gas Phase Reaction in PBR for δ≠0 The reaction A + 2B  C is carried out in a packed bed reactor in which there is pressure drop. The feed is stoichiometric in A and B. Plot the conversion and pressure ratio y = P/P0 as a function of catalyst weight up to 100 kg. Additional Information kA = 6 dm9/mol2/kg/min α = 0.02 kg-1

20. Example 2:Gas Phase Reaction in PBR for δ≠0 A + 2B  C 3) Stoichiometry: Gas, Isothermal 1) Mole Balance 2) Rate Law

31. Pressure Drop - Summary • Pressure Drop • Liquid Phase Reactions • Pressure Drop does not affect concentrations in lquid phase reactions. • Gas Phase Reactions • Epsilon does not equal to zero d(P)/d(W)=… Polymath will combine with d(X)/d(W) =… for you • Epsilon = 0 and isothermal P=f(W) Combine then separate variables (X,W) and integrate • Engineering Analysis of Pressure Drop
